the grey box in the upper right corner is a good way to see what the id3 tags look like without having to play the show. they were based off your old / original metadata filling out. so now you fixed the metadata on the details page files. this is good, but the old mp3 / m3u stream files are al still 'static' and using the track names you originally put. to fix this you need to do a little work:

1. checkout the show (in the 'edit item' link since you are the uploader) it will give you the FTP info of the show. go there, delete ONLY the m3u / mp3 / ogg derivatives. KEEP the xml and seed files. then 'check-in' the show by clicking the link at the bottom of the checkout page.

2. when the show is checked back in, edit the XML page to double check that it is all updated / correct / ready to go. hit 'submit' and then the most up to date xml file will be 'written' and ready.

3. go into the edit screen and hit 'derive' and the engine will create fresh mp3 / m3u (and the grey flash player) with the most up to date song names and the files will then have the right titles.

you must delete the old ones, because just hitting 'derive' will not delete the old ones for you. you have to do that first and then derive fresh ones. good luck!

yeah it will take a few hours for the machines to re-run / re-create the fresh files with the new file names, but it should work ok.
